IIIIlAa 1IM411 MoMimrriiiiiB wiamm Is located at McMinnville, Oregon, fifty miles South of Portland, on the Western Oregon Railroad ; is easy of access from all points of the State and Territories. On reaching the town the College buildiug can be seen from the depot. HEALTH AND DESIRABLENESS OF THIS LOCATION The valley in which our College is located has a reputation throughout the State for health and beauty, and the Town is as favorable for school pur- poses as any that could be selected in the State. It is well supplied with churches and prosperous Sabbath Schools. THE AIM OF THIS COLLEGE Is to be first class in every respect, to do good and thorough work. Without such a College we cannot meet our high obligations and enjoy our high priv- ileges. Children will learn, and an irreparable injury will be done to them and to society unless that learning is directed to worthy objects and aims. The demand is imperative. We must have a College to which we can send our children for a thorough course of instruction , morally and intellec- tually. We dare not ignore the fact that a trained mind not properly directed in morals is a very dangerous thing. For this reason one object of McMinnville College will be to regard the truths of the bible and teach upon the principle i hat men are moral beings. We do not believe that a student is fitted to fill the high places of society and discharge his obligations to his God until all of his faculties are rightly developed. As will be seen from our course of study laid down in this catalogue, we aim to leave the learner deficient in no branch that is usually studied in our best Colleges, or that will best fit the student for a useful life. ACCOMODATIONS. All who knew of our school in the past knew that we woe deficient in many needful things. Our building was not suitable, our library amounted to but little, and we had no apparatus at all. But now our new house is in process of erection, will be ready for school the corning year. The President of the scliool has gone East to procure books and an Apparatus for the school. We purpose to have the best conveniences that can be offered. Another regular teacher is to be added to the faculty this year, and more time shall be devoted to each class. Every effort will lie made to induce the student to make the best possible use of his time. The government of the College is simp] ', every student is required to act as becomes a lady or gentleman. When this requirement is not meta speedy remedy will be sought in removal, EXAMINATIONS Will be held at the close of each term. M MINNVILLE COLLEGE. SOME REGULATIONS. The College exercises are opened every morning by reading the Bible, singing and prayer. All students are required to attend these exercises. Stndents are also required to attend divine services at least once every Sabbath. No student hereafter, who attends this school will be allowed to belong to any organization that will hinder from his studies. Students will be strictly forbidden to attend any gatherings, entertain- ments, or be out ol nights, except on special permission from parents and teacher. COLLEGE SOCIETY. A Charter for a College Literary Society is being prepared, and the com- ing year special efforts will be made to have the best Society that can be made LIBRARY. As is already mentioned, the President is now making an effort among Eastern friends to secure at least 2,000 volumes, and to all these, students will have access free. EXPENSES. The College year is divided into four terms of ten weeks each. TUITION IS AS FOLLOWS: In Primary Department, Per Term $ 5 00 In Academic " " " 7 00 InCollege " " " 10 00 Tuition to be paid quarterly in advance.
